||King Famous CD (2007) |
King Famous CD discography King Famous is shameless in his rhyme. He makes his music based on his every day experience in an effort to reclaim his biological instinctual self. The Robot Factory, a large building producing mechanical monsters and ideas, has changed the sociological behavior patterns of nearly every worker in the town. To combat the conspiracy as it may seem, the King has sharpened his arsenal of mediums including performance, drumming, programming, drawing and magic to re-educate the Depressors and Half Zombies to combat the droves of robot salary men at work in Holiday (Kojo) City.
What makes Mr. Famous a King is that he has somehow remained in control of his brain and therefore can speak very clearly in times of confusion and mayhem. King Famous rules over his mind as if he was a monarch and his body were the monarchy.
Meaning Blauwsplat has raped innocents of their minds and natural selves and replaced the organic flow of animal with mechanized movements and jittery nervous cyborgtic tensions. With his own style of robot combat, King Famous has appeared to purge the purposeless and dismiss the waste that pervades our quality of life as human beings. He is here to un-hypnotize the drooling Depressors that have infiltrated the bodies of our moms and dads. He is here to omit the Orator, ruler of the Robot Factory.
King Famous is here to spread the word about the power of being creative as a catalyst for positive planetary change.

King Famous albums Before King Famous, there was a play.
The play had no real setting, it took place in a Black Box. It wasn't until some time later that the world in the play became much larger, complex, and unpredictable. Before King Famous was named the Musical Warrior, he was an interpreter, rapidly became a punk rapper, was named a shaman, then soldier, then storyteller. He became The Musical Warrior because that is what people named him. King Famous performs with honor and respect for all living things.
While his primary medium of communication is musical theater (because it allows for King to utilize his full repertoire of monologue, poetry, song and dance), King Famous has performed and still performs in any type of venue, at just about any type of show. He works with other artists, producers, and organizations to entertain, educate, and enlighten.
The relationship of man to machine gave birth to King Famous. It was the running rhythm of the machine that evoked the need for dinosaur dreaming, repeated sound, and purity in song from the backpacker.
The rural environment turned micro-industrial town was (is) home. While farmland existed, it was rarely seen, often built on, often destroyed. Haphazard commerce, and space for cars and asphalt were erected, perfected, and then shined and buffed -- one after the other after the other.
Solace was found in the sounds from the classic piano playing by my brother, Brad Scheller.
Everybody has a machine, mom said. I own and operate many, and often feel I am rebelling against my own existence, bred to absorb and take advantage of myself and those around me yet feeling sorry for the fact that I can (and do).
